ICER is located on the UChicago university campus south of downtown, within a ten minute walk from Lake Michigan. There are two conference hotels, both located near each other. They are in the heart of Hyde Park, on a street with an abundance of restaurants and treats. Have some amazing Chicago pizza at Giordano’s or a tasty treat at Kilwin’s ice cream. They are an approximately 20-min walk to the venue and on the UChicago shuttle bus line to campus.
The booking code for Park Hyatt is available Monday evening through Thursday morning, and the Sophy is available Monday evening through Friday morning. If you arrive earlier or depart later than those dates, you may need to make a separate reservation and then ask them to combine them when you arrive so you do not need to move rooms. Because the conference is required to pay for 80% of the hotel rooms in the block, we couldn’t open up liability past those dates.
Sophisticated and eclectic, the SOPHY® Hotel embodies the crafts and passions of art, science, literature, and music that are the inspiration of today’s Hyde Park, Chicago luxury hotel.
